Coastal Carolina head football coach Joe Moglia is determined to make sure every one of his players exercises the right to vote. So he rented a bus, rallied more than 100 players and took a Tuesday morning field trip to the voting booths in Conway, SC.

He told MyrtleBeachOnline.com:

"Every one of our guys is going to vote Tuesday, and that's something I'm incredibly proud of," Moglia said. "The service academies do that. There's not going to be one other university football team in the nation that's going to do that, and you know every one of them probably should do that."

All players took to the polls 'to support their teammates' on Tuesday -- even those who voted through absentee ballots.

"The right to vote is one of the cornerstones of this great democracy and is a privilege no one should take for granted," Moglia said.
